I'm a novelist and poet from the U.S.
I'm always really self conscious when I write so please be nice to me. I'm trying.

Message from Writer

over you
are as
numerous as
the stars
glinting on
the night
skies known
as my
cheeks.

so don't let pain define your every breathing second.
you will be okay. let it shape you and let it help you grow

silence that sits in the air

FREE WRITING

at night there is
a silence that sits
upon the heavy air

it is that of peace and
tranquility, laying in
your bed with some
dreams around your head

it is that of the thoughts
of loved ones and your
friends, the kind that will
bring a smile to your lips

it is that of the feeling
of fur against your body,
the warmth of your loved
pet, by your side

that's not all it is,
however

it is also...

Nine years Prior
    
The wait was immensely long. Evvy felt like she had been sitting in this room for hours. At seven years old, the child had too much energy. But the room was full of gray chairs against white walls and the buzzing of a newscaster on a large television overhead. Time seemed to inch along by immeasurable increments.

fire: ˈfī(ə)r
combustion or burning,
in which substances combine chemically
with oxygen from the air
and typically give out bright light, heat, and smoke.


but what is it actually?
fire is more than a chemical reaction

fire is warmth, yes
it gives one the chance
to curl up beside someone they love
and just bask in it all

fire is light, yes
it is the light at the
end of the tunnel
